Cleveland Browns coach Freddie Kitchens has confirmed that Odell Beckham Jr. is good to go barring any setbacks for the teams first game on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
#Browns Freddie Kitchens: Odell's ready to go.

Beckham was limited most of training camp and the preseason dealing with a hip injury, but he is healthy and ready to go.
There is a lot of talk about what Beckham is going to be able to do with his new team and one guy who has high expectations is Nate Burleson.
Appearing on NFL Network, Burleson said he expects Beckham is going to have at least 200 yards receiving against the Titans.
“I’ll tell you now that a man named Baker Mayfield and a man named Odell Beckham will connect for 200 yards in their first game together,” Burleson said via Heavy.com. “The wide receiver and the connection with Baker Mayfield is going to be unbelievable. They don’t trade for an individual and pay him that much money to not throw him the ball.”
Beckham has only had more than 200 yards receiving once, catching eight passes for 222 yards and a touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in 2016.
Beckham and Mayfield haven’t gotten as many reps as they would have liked this preseason, but are still confident they will be fine for Week 1.
“We talk every day,” Beckham told reporters. “We talk football. We talk about just the little ins and outs of football. Even when I’m watching him make other throws, I’m still coming to ask him what is it that you’re seeing.”
There will be a lot of eyes on the Browns and Beckham on Sunday and it should be some must-watch TV.
